Woman Who Confronted Beto O’Rourke Speaks Out, And She’s Got A Message For President Trump

Published

on

Lauren Boebert, the Colorado restaurant owner who confronted Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke about his gun control proposals during a Thursday town hall, discussed the issue on Saturday morning’s “Fox & Friends.”

“I am here to say hell no, you’re not,” Boebert, who owns a pro-Second Amendment restaurant called Shooters Grill, told O’Rourke on Thursday. “I have four children. I’m 5 foot zero, 100 pounds, cannot defend myself with a fist. I want to know how you’re going to legislate that, because a criminal by defense breaks the law. So all you’re going to do is restrict law-abiding citizens like myself.”

In addition to discussing what led her to confront the presidential candidate, Boebert also had a few more words for O’Rourke along with a message for President Donald Trump.

“Well, I heard that Beto was coming to my state of Colorado to talk about gun control or maybe gun legislation, and I heard what he had to say about taking away our Second Amendment rights and our firearms,” Boebert said, responding to a question about why she decided to confront O’Rourke. “And I really wanted to go down there and just reverse his statement, and tell him absolutely not. Because I’m sure that that is every gun owning American’s immediate response to his ‘hell yes’ was an immediate, firm ‘hell no.’”

“Shame on him for coming to Colorado to expound upon our tragedies,” she continued. “Those are our victims and he came here to paint a picture for his own campaign trail and, really, shame on you sir for doing that. We were here. We experienced those losses. That was a community, a community loss, and honestly those victims were defenseless. There were criminals that did those horrible acts, and, by definition, those criminals do not obey the law, so there is no legislation that you can pass that is going to stop the evil in a man’s heart. So, if he has a desire to go out to harm someone he will find a way to do that.”

The Colorado restaurant owner then had some words of encouragement for President Trump:

Our current administration absolutely needs to take a stand now, today, and say we will honor the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States. We support our president. I love my president, and I implore him, please protect our Second Amendment. We elected you to do just that. We don’t want anything inched away because every little thing that’s on chopping block eventually will lead to no ownership of firearms in America.

  • Michael Mcraven says:

    Thank You for defending our Second Amendment Rights. We All Understand That More Gun Laws Will Not prevent the lunacy of a criminal from the evil within him. I agree,,Any New Gun Legislation Will Only Do More Harm To The Law-Abiding Citizen And Nothing to curb Violence.

  • Doris_Speaks says:

  • Arline says:

    She speaks for all GOOD AMERICANS who don’t want their Constitutional Rights tread on. Thank you for speaking up and calling this demon-crat what he and all democrats are out to do. They want to “change our Constitution” and this is just not acceptable..

    • Doris_Speaks says:

      Change the Constitution? Heck, they want to abolish it! Socialist/Communist/Marxist/Facist don’t have constitutions.

  • Diana says:

    She is right we all know this is the plan by these corrupt politicians, they want our Constitution as Written canceled it will not happen without a fight, that is why our Forefathers did the Constitution as Written because of what was done to law bidding citizens in Europe, then their religion was taken away, so our Forefathers made that as well in our Constitution as Written and Trump better STOP these politicians immediately, and start prosecuting these Traitors anyone try to Change, Twist, ignore, or Cancel our CONSTITUTION as WRITTEN is a Traitor must be charged with Treason no plea deals,

    No Red Flag or national registry. The Feds fuck up everything!

  • Pa John says:

    Beto can’t scratch past maybe ~1% in polling and desperately NEEDED some way to shine some serious attention on himself. He obviously found it, but he has apparently not considered anything beyond achieving better “name recognition”. _Name recognition_ is how Biden kept polling so well even though he is a walking gaff machine – when people answer those poll questions they recognize Biden’s name and so there you go, he tends to poll better than the names people simply do not know on the questionnaires.

    In Beto’s case, his “name recognition” gambit worked – people now know his name nationwide as it is being plastered everywhere over his foolish – and wildly unconstitutional to the point of impossible – gun confiscation nonsense. Unfortunately for him his name is now also associated with the accurate term of “Domestic Enemy of the U.S. Constitution”. And anyone who has sworn to “uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic” now has to view him as an enemy to be defeated.

    He appears to be playing the part of a wildcard sacrificial player, in order to make the other wildly unconstitutional democrat ideas look “moderate” by comparison. I haven’t yet decided whether this is intentional planning by experts or if he is simply being ridiculous on his own without any coaching. 🙂

    When they try to ban guns you will see entire states refusing to comply, along with countless towns / cities / counties in all the remaining states as well. Remember, we ARE the police and we ARE the military, or at least the vast majority of them who will honor their constitutional oaths, and refuse to enforce unconstitutional laws or obey unlawful orders. The left is doing a far better job of setting themselves up for destruction than any outside force could ever hope to achieve.

  • Karen K says:

    I totally agree with Lauren 100%. Hell No!! You ain’t taking my guns!!

  • Don says:

    I love this. A beautiful, spirited,intelligent Conservative lady who is speaking for millions of us. That whole Democrat gang looks like something that escaped from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s nest only dumber and more vile and evil. I hope the bastards destroy themselves. If I get to CO again, I’ll make it a point to go to Shooter’s Grill and enjoy the atmosphere. Where is it?

  • Charles Rezner says:

    The lady is right on track. Criminals are people who break laws. Why would anyone expect them not to break gun laws just like they break other laws. The 2nd Amendment was written to make sure citizens were able to protect themselves. Beto is a loser willing to try anything to get traction and failing once again.

  • VietnamVeteran says:

    I wonder what would be the outcome if 50 million or more armed gun owners showed up in Washington, D.C. and just said, “Come and get them, you traitorous politicians ! ! !” Think they would try?

  • jast73 says:

    I think Beto’s balls went back up inside him after this woman roasted his dumb ass.

  • Ronald says:

    I wonder why CNN didn’t interview her.

  • Roberta Zimmerman says:

    Fantastic! I am so happy that she spoke up! My family and I feel the very same!

  • Yank says:

    I support every word this lady spoke! Our forefathers added “shall not to be infringed” for a reason. It’s like our forefathers knew these kinds of politicians would eventually raise their ugly heads to disrespect our Constitution, our country and law abiding citizens. These politicians have made their intentions known but, their agenda is nowhere near being totally clear. Hitler disarmed countries, too.

  • Fred says:

    I can President Trump this for sure: if he fails to uphold or support the 2nd Amendment or bow to the liberal Democrats on gun control he will loose the 2020 election big time…we 2nd Amendment supporters will NOT vote for any Democrat , instead we will just say home and vote for NOBODY !!!

  • nick gerz says:
